Dogs For Adoption – Bergerac SPA

Many of the more vulnerable dogs (and cats) are taken into Phoenix care from the Bergerac SPA Refuge. Sadly, we don’t have the foster space to be able to accommodate more than a very small percentage.

However, if you would like to adopt directly from the SPA pound, we are happy to join you and assist with the adoption. We may, in certain cases, be able to negotiate the tariff.

We can`t promise, as it depends on available foster-space, but we will also endeavor to rehome any dog adopted directly from the SPA pound if the adoption doesn`t work out. Returning it to the pound would be a difficult decision all round!

Please note that dogs adopted from Bergerac SPA are NOT sterilised unless indicated in the text. Currently, male cats are castrated, but female cats are NOT sterilised.

To view the entire selection of animals available at Bergerac SPA, please visit their website or email: or on Tel 05 53 27 27 50

IGOR – a 4yr-old Boxer X (217AB)

“Aren’t I a handsome boy with my tufty ears and little beard! You can probably see that I am quite a character, a well-built lad, who can be quite dominant at times, so I am looking for someone who will be able to keep me in line as I am easily distracted! I have had training but this really needs to be reinforced, so perhaps someone who is an experienced dog owner would be good for me. I am 4 years old and have been castrated. Ideally I would need an enclosed garden, without cats or chickens. If you feel you would like me to be your faithful friend, come and see me at the SPA – tout de suite if you please!”

His dog-walker says and he’s a powerful dog, but not uncontrollable at all. He keeps looking back when walking on the lead to make sure he is doing OK, though he’s is easily distracted and you have to be alert with him. He has been walked out with smaller dogs without a problem.

He has had good training and she’s confident that with the right people he would be a great addition to the family, and a very faithful companion.

Igor is chipped, vaccinated and neutered and if you’d like to meet him, please contact Jackie Briggs at

DOCK – an 8 yr-old Golden Lab X Retriever – Bergerac SPA n° 438

“Bonjour!  My name is Dock, and I am a very affectionate Lab X Retriever of approximately 8 years young!

It has been several months since I arrived at the SPA and I have to say that during this time I have started to gain a bit of middle age spread! I am not happy about this and would dearly love to be with a family who will be happy to give me the exercise I really need to get in shape again! I adore investigating everything around me on my walks with the volunteers and can be very playful too.  I respond well to basic commands, and would dearly love to learn some more! My current companion in my box is a female (Cosette), I get on well with all females ! but not really too keen on males. I have been castrated, am calm and composed, adore tummy tickles and will be a good friend, so please get in touch if you think you could offer me my forever home……I’ll be waiting …..”

MARCUS – 3 yr old Braque / Pointer

MARCUS is a friendly chap, always pleased to have company and is exceptionally affectionate and adores his cuddles. Marcus is sociable with the other dogs in his kennel run, and is easily handled, doesn’t pull on the lead (unless he is very excited!), His training is going well, however he will need to be taught not to chase cats!

MARCUS is the sort of dog who loves to stay close to his handler, always seeks cuddles and gives loyalty. If you would like to meet this super friendly and deeply affectionate boy, come and meet him at Bergerac SPA and take him for a walk, get to know him a little.
